Mr. Valley, Summit, Volume 25 - Issue 29 Wednesday March 3, 2010 Julian, CA. ISSN 1937-8416 Broadway Show Is Set In Julian George Gershwin's 1930's musical 'Crazy For You' will not only be coming to Julian - it's set in Julian. The story is about a young New York banker who goes to a small western gold-mining town to foreclose on a theater. Of course, he falls for the owner's daughter instead and decides to try to save the theater by putting on a show. "The parallels were irresistible," co-director Don Winslow (a native new Yorker who moved to small western gold-mining town) said about the decision to change 'Deadrock, Nevada' to 'Julian, California', "right down to staged gunfights for tourists. And we just might have dropped a few references to apple pie in there, too." Set designer Scott Kinney took great pains to bring 1930's Julian to life on the stage. Working with historical photographs, he has replicated Main Street from that era. Kinney also went out and photographed the town himself, wanting, among other things, to "get the color of the sky right". Choreographed by Gwen and Rachel Hernandez of the Ramona/Julian Academy of Dance (which added an extra tap class in Julian to accommodate the ambitious cast), the show features some of the most celebrated songs in the American musical canon, including Tve Got Rhythm', 'Someone To Watch Over Me', 'Slap That Bass', and 'They Can't Take That Away From Me'. Co-director Garnette Welch, whose husband Alan is building the sets with his students at Julian High, said, "It's a delight to teach great music and introduce students to sophisticated, challenging material. The kids 'like it, and work hard to make it their own." Other people are full of praise for the cast as well. Guest performer John Culver, well- known in Julian for his annual portrayal of Scrooge in 'A Christmas Carol', said, "1 actually got goose-bumps at rehearsal the other day observing not only their talent - but their dedication, discipline, enthusiasm and commitment to each other. There was a mutual respect- you didn't see that division into cliques." Choreographer Hernandez added, "Do you think I'd make the trip up here if I didn't love working with these kids? Julian kids are polite, smart...they listen, and they'll do anything you ask. They're just great to work with." Winslow observed that he never has a problem getting 'outsiders' to help on the shows at the high school. "Once they've worked with Julian kids, they want to do it again." 'Crazy For You' will be performed on March 18, 19, and 20 at 7:00 PM at the Little Theatre at Julian Union High School. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for those under eighteen and are available at the high school office. For reservations or information call 765-0606, ext. 100. "Broadway is coming to Julian," Winslow said. "Now we hope that Julian will come to Broadway." Chamber Mixer The monthly Julian Chamber of Commerce mixer will be at Angels Landing on Thursday March 4th at 5:30. This is a chance for members and non-members to mingle and discuss the direction of the Julian business community.

You are invited to learn more about the California Wolf Center, its mission and accomplishments by attending a program at the Julian Library. The Center has developed educational programs for all ages to learn about the importance of wolves in the ecosystem. Wolves once roamed North America in countless numbers until they were hunted to near extinction. The Center's goal to educate you about the wolf will help you understand and make better decisions to support wolves in the wild. Except for wolves at the California Wolf Center and zoos and wildlife refuges, there are virtually no wild wolves remaining in California. In addition to studying the Gray Wolf, the Center participates in the Mexican Wolf Species Survival Program by hosting and breeding highly endangered Mexican wolves. Currently, there are 24 wolves located at the California Wolf Center. Seven are Alaskan Gray wolves and 17 are Mexican Gray wolves. This informational talk will discuss how efforts have reintroduced wolves to Yellowstone National Park and Idaho, helping to rebalance the ecosystem. Wolves are known as "engineers of biodiversity." This will be explained more thoroughly in the talk. Please attend this program to learn how the Wolf Center is making a difference our own community, as well as how it fits with the larger efforts of wildlife conservation. Come to the Julian Branch Library to hear about the California Wolf Center, watch a presentation and commend them on their efforts. For more information about this and other programs at the library, please contact us at (760) 765-0370. The library is located at 1850 Highway 78 (next to the high school.) Founded in 1977, the Center is located approximately four miles south of the town of Julian, CA off of Highway 79. The California Wolf Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit wildlife education center committed to increasing public awareness and understanding of the importance of all wildlife by focusing on the history, biology, behavior, and ecology of the gray wolf (Canis lupus). This is accomplished by offering engaging educational programs, participating in conservation programs, and hosting and funding research on both captive and free-ranging wolves.
